Gift

By Guy Bellaranti

What kind of gift can I give
My mom for Mother’s Day?
I want it to be special,
In ways that words can’t say.

Flowers? Chocolate kisses?
I know! Some pretty art—
Carefully crafted with love
From deep within my heart.

Now it’s your turn!
Write a poem about what’s happening in nature where you live. If it’s springtime, you might write about flowers or baby animals or trees leafing out. If it’s fall, you might write about trees losing their leaves or the way the air feels in fall. If you live in the tropics, you might write about anything you see in nature.

Another idea is to write a poem for a holiday you celebrate in April, May, or June. It could be Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, VE Day, or any holiday you like.
